The Saints' Testimonies to the True Parents
What follows is a complex document. It was produced at a seminar in spirit world for leaders of the five great religions. It includes testimonies to the TrueParents, a letter from God, messages from four communist leaders, and aresolution written and adopted by the representatives of the five great religions.To take this all in, we advise you to relax and open your mind for a while. If youbelieve in the existence of a higher dimension of reality, of God, of an invisiblerealm, this will call you to reflect on the implications of that belief. We believein the spirit world and in the continuation of individual identity from this world to that one. All the passed-away saints are residing in spirit world. Since Jesuscalled him in 1935, the Reverend Sun Myung Moon has carried on a ministry tospirit world in parallel with his ministry on Earth. He has sought to gather thefounders and saints of all faiths around one table of unity. In recent times, hehas ministered to spirits in hell and opened the gates of their liberation. Thiscollection of testimonies is one fruit of that ministry.The Family Federation for World Peace and Unification is publishing thisdocument throughout America and in 40 countries worldwide. This proclamation is our responsibility to let all humankind know the works of God in our age.This message has significant practical as well as spiritual import. It is a unifyingmessage, addressing believers of all faiths as one global family. As such it isintended to draw all men and women to the one Holy God and help bring world  peace. Peace will not arrive through politics or economic development alone,as crucial as these things are. The foundation for peace is common faith in God and practice of true parental, conjugal and familial love. Hence the value of True Parents, and the messianic power of their words and works. A committee or coalition cannot instigate true love; the responsibility for thisdevolves to substantial human exemplars. The testimonies that follow bear witness that the Reverend and Mrs. Sun Myung Moon are those exemplars and have opened the gates for all people to inherit, through them, God's completed salvation, prophesied in all scriptures.The testimonies appeal to Father Moon's teachings and works as the evidenceof their veracity. We encourage the reader to move beyond these messagesand duly pursue study of his teachings and works. Those of us who havefollowed Father Moon's leadership confirm the testimonies of the saints. Webelieve in God's work for world peace, to bring His kingdom upon the Earth and in Heaven. With that love and hope in our hearts, we recommend thesemessages to you.The Editors, Family Federation for World Peace International,www.familyfed.org,www.tongil.or.kr
